Tipperary: “I am sick of this place”

Dear Mother,

Just a card to say I reveived your ever welcome letter alright.  And I am glad to know that all at home are still enjoying good health.  I am leaving here on Friday for Newtownards, so you need not write here again.  I need not tell you that I am not sorry at the change, for I am sick of this place.  So I asked to get back to my unit.  We were to go on Thursday but now it’s changed to Friday.  The old address in Newtownards will find me.  No more at present.  Love to all at home.

Your loving son,
